Subject: i was there
Subject: my thoughts........... not everyones.
The first set is arguably the best first set (song for song) I ever saw.
Every version is SOLID.
The Row Jimmy is still my favorite to this day.
We were in the back, on the floor with plenty of dancing room.
I was at every show this tour and this one always comes back to me.
Subject: Great Sounding AUD!!!!!
Subject: very nice Aud - and a terrific day of playing
And so it goes for this gem. Stranger gets off to a fitting start- the jam is paced nicely and tells a full story without any dull moments- Stranger is one of those tunes that should have had so many more great versions than there are- this is not a top 10 or 20- but above average- and so goes the rest of the first set- all above average.
Absolutely loved the slipknot in this show- it is quintessential GD- the kind that if you started hearing the jam in the middle you would say- now that there is the GD- slipknot does not bang you over the head but instead strings along effortlessly- and i got the feeling that there was neither one note too little nor one not too many- perfect- same goes for Estimated which flows into a sweet but not overly sweet He's gone- which then flows into an other oneish jam- and so on- give this baby a listen
